Digital Innovations for Bending the Curve - A Thrust for Scale

Norad has the pleasure to invite for a mHealth seminar to share knowledge and consolidate efforts in order to drive scale.  

Technical and social innovations have greatly enhanced global health by improving the efficiency, access and cost of interventions. Child mortality has declined from 12, 6 million in 1990 to less than 6,6 million in 2012. This is largely due to innovations in vaccines, drugs, diagnostics, health devices and digital tools.

Nevertheless, a huge task still lies ahead. Every day 800 mothers die in childbirth. Every day 8000 newborns die. There is a pressing need to reach unserved populations in hard to reach areas if we are to bend the curve to attain significant reduction in these figures, and at the same time accelerate progress towards achieving the health Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

Healthcare delivery is currently undergoing a paradigm shift with digital innovations. Over the past few years, new tools and approaches have been developed and deployed in a way that nobody expected. In order to translate this great potential into benefits for the unserved populations in developing countries, Norway has been at the forefront of efforts to promote digital solutions in global health.

Through thriving collaboration with various global and national stakeholders, these efforts have been focusing on providing evidence on impact and cost-effectiveness, knowledge sharing, information exchange, and on supporting scale based on country-led strategies.

It is against this background, Norad has the pleasure to invite for a mHealth seminar, which will have the following objectives:
